Earrings by Sue Gregor These handmade contemporary earrings are made using 100%recycled perspex and sterling silver earring, I have used the actual flowers from three verieties of hydrangea to create the design . My unusual botanic jewellery is created by collecting, drying and pressing the individual flowers or leaves. The recycled acrylic is heated and the leaves are pressed into its surface. I then use them like a stencil to apply the colours. The flowers are peeled off to reveal the unique, colourful design. This is a method of dying and embossing plastic jewelry I developed myself. I call it 'Fossilised Plastic' due to the fine detail that's possible to capture on the embossed surface - so they are similar to fossils.I choose quite ordinary plants and weeds to create my floral art jewellery designs. The edges are faceted and hand polished. These botanical statement earrings evoke both a contemporary and a vintage feel, appealing to friends, mums and colleagues alike. I hope that the wearer will not only enjoy them as jewellery but also review their appreciation of the natural worldBritish fashion - grown and handmade in UK.65mm (H) x 12mm (W) x 5mm (D) (90mm total drop)Sterling Silver and Acrylic Features Primary Material : recycled perspex Other Materials : sterling silver Length (mm) : 90 Fitting Type : Hook Dimensions (mm) : 90 x12 x5 One of a Kind : No Hallmarked : No Wire Material : sterling silver Cleaning InstructionsWipe clear with a damp cloth.
